Book a sports pitch in a park

Football matches are cancelled this weekend - Saturday 11 and Sunday 12 December 2021

Unfortunately, we have to cancel all football matches on council-owned pitches in Sandwell for this weekend. This includes both Saturday and Sunday matches (11 and 12 December). 

The team have worked hard all week to get the pitches in a playable condition, but given the wet weather and the forecast for more rain we are keen not further damage them for future use.

The weather forecast looks better for next week and we hope matches will be back on our sites for the final fixtures of 2021 on 18 and 19 December before the Christmas / New Year break.

The cancellation covers these pitches:

  • Barnford Park
  • Bearmore Playing Fields
  • Britannia Park
  • Brunswick Park
  • Churchfields Playing Fields
  • Hydes Road Playing Fields
  • Jubilee Park
  • Lion Farm Playing Fields
  • Red House Park
  • Tividale Park
  • West Smethwick Park
  • Jesson Playing Fields
  • Cakemore Playing Fields
  • Charlemont Playing Fields
